 Science in Action! 

ASTA Annual Conference
November 19, 2016
Grand Canyon University
Phoenix, AZ

COME JOIN US!


 

The annual conference of the Arizona Science Teachers Association, Science in Action! will be  held on November 19, 2016 in  Phoenix at Grand Canyon University with pre-conference immersion in science half-day workshops on Friday, November 18th.  Over 300 science educators will share ideas and work together to advocate research-based science teaching and learning for all of Arizona's children. Attendees have over 40  90-minute workshops to choose from a focus strand:

·        Real World Connections One of the main goals of science education is to provide student the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful both personally and professionally.  This strand will help teachers to recongnize learning opportunities  in formal and informal settings that can support students in and out of the classroom.  This strand may involve topics such as career preparation, industry/education alliances, citizen science initiatives and understanding the impact of various issues important in science and promotion of career pathways.  

 
·        Hands on STEM – Science education has drastically changed over time with the focus shifting from knowledge based understanding of science concepts to an understanding of the world through the intentional connections of the four disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math.  STEM education and curriculum utilizes strategies that engage diverse learners and highlights career pathways into STEM.  This strand will involve the importance of "doing" science. 

 
·        Tools of the Trade – Science teachers are challenged daily with staying current on the available resources and tools.  Wheth
er it's technology, content, or pedagogy - this strand gives teachers ideas to build and enhance their "teacher toolbox" with strategies and ideas to support all students in science and STEM.
